I can’t believe my baby is 7 months old! 7 months. Realizing that I’ve been a parent for the better part of a year is a weird thing to think about.

Miles’ personality blossoms more every day. I feel like I’m dealing with a little person rather than a sleepy infant during the day and it’s so fun.

I can’t wait to see what the next month holds for him!

Firsts: first vegetables, first trip to Washington, D.C. (work trip with Mommy), first visit from Mimi, first night in his own room.

Loves: Wrestling with his giant bear. My mom got Miles a bear that’s about three times his size for Christmas. Watching him play with it is hilarious simply because of the size difference, but his favorite trick is to pull the bear down on top of himself until he’s simply buried in the soft brown fur. It’s adorable (although I’m partial). He also just discovered avocados and loves the taste.

Learning: To pick up his sweet-potato and blueberry-flavored finger-crackers. It’s sort of a losing battle at this point (most end up on the floor), but he’s learning! He’s also finally sleeping for longer stretches at night. Hooray for progress!

Wearing: Carter’s. Always. And his new sunglasses.

Laughs At: Tickling. Suddenly, one day, my baby was ticklish. SO ticklish.

Dislikes: Naptime. I think he’s trying to give it up for good. (Is that possible??).

Is excited for: The day Mom decides to let him eat whatever Mom and Dad are eating instead of baby food. Also, the day he’ll be able to reach all of those fun flashing buttons underneath the TV table. I can see him eyeing them carefully …
